If you’re looking for decent value on divisional favorites in the NBA, chances are you won’t find it this season.
The Heat are 1/100 favorites to repeat as Southeast champs, while the Northwest (Thunder -1800) and Pacific (Lakers -3000) divisions are also expected to be predictable and unexciting.
Overall, the odds suggest that five of the six divisions will have back-to-back winners, with the Central being the only division to experience change at the top. Indiana finished eight games behind Chicago in 2011-12, but is a -175 favorite to win this season.
As the regular season approaches, we’ll provide a more in-depth look at each division. But for now, here is a list of NBA divisional odds released by the LVH SuperBook on Tuesday.
